Reference Materials for Software Testing Practices

You may use these for further learning about software testing practices. I have referred most of them for learning and preparing notes in this section.

Test Driven Development (TDD) also called as test-first approach by many, is a development approach where we first write tests based on our requirements before writing actual production code.

TDD makes sure that all the intended features of the program are working as expected. Kent Beck, who is credited with having developed or "rediscovered" the technique, stated in 2003 that TDD encourages simple designs and inspires confidence. (source = Wikipedia)


A Test-Driven Development (TDD) cycle usually may have following steps:

Introduction to Unit Tests

Unit testing is a software testing method by which individual units of source code, together with associated control data, usage procedures, and operating procedures, are tested to determine whether they are fit for use.

A unit is the smallest testable part of an application. In procedural programming, a unit could be an entire module, or an individual function or procedure. In object-oriented programming, a unit is often a class, but could be an individual method. (source = Wikipedia).


Some of the properties of good unit tests are:
